Powerful Proteins -- with 8 ounces or more a day, such as eggs, lean beef, chicken, fish and whey -- boost metabolism by up to 25 percent for about 12 hours to keep metabolic fires burning. Proteins are the tissue and muscle builders par excellence. For every pound of muscle gained, you burn an extra 70 calories per hour. Subsequently, you will help stop hunger and keep blood sugar/insulin levels steady as well as support your system's detoxification process. And you'll actually be eating eggs with yolks on the diet because the sulfur-bearing amino acids they contain help the liver metabolize fats.

Amazing Omegas -- such as high-lignan flaxseed oil and GLA-rich botanicals from evening primrose oil, borage, or black currant seed oil -- trigger fat burning rather than fat storage. Flaxseed oil tops the satiety scale and can attract oil-soluable poisons that have been lodged in your fat stores and transport them out of the system. The GLA oils mobilize brown adipose tissue, which burns off excess calories and burns energy.

Colorful, Friendly Carbohydrates -- such as antioxidant-rich fruits and veggies -- that are high in natural enzymes, vitamins and minerals such as potassium, keep sodium out of your cells to banish water retention.
